Gymnastics Injuries: Like Football for Girls?

Here is an excerpt from an Important article in Bay State Parent Magazine’s May issue.

GYMNASTS Tumble & Vault Themselves Into The ER


NATIONAL STUDY SAYS GYMNASTICS HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST INJURY RATES OF ALL GIRLS’ SPORTS

BY jennifer lucarelli

THE FACTS

600,000 kids, mostly girls, participate in gymnastics

• Nearly 27,000 gymnasts get serious injured each year, according to the national study. These numbers are similar to ice hockey, soccer, and cheerleading.

• Most injuries happen at schools and recreation centers, where supervision is lacking.

• Injury rates tend to spike during Olympic years, of which this is one.

THE STUDY

Contrary to what some parents may think, gymnastics is considered by some as the football of girls sports when it comes to injuries.

Though it’s a graceful and exciting sport to watch and participate, a new national study, the first-of-its kind, shows gymnastics has one of the highest injury rates of all girls’ sports, ranking it among contact sports like hockey and soccer.

The study, conducted by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio, compiled gymnastic related injuries from emergency rooms nationwide from 1990 to 2005.

The data revealed that children age 6 to 17 averaged 27,000 injuries per year. That totals nearly 426,000 injuries during the 16-year study.

“Many parents do not typically think of gymnastics as a dangerous sport,” said study senior author Lara McKenzie, PhD, MA, principal investigator for the Ohio hospital in a release. “In fact, many parents consider it an activity. Yet gymnastics have the same clinical incidence of catastrophic injuries as hockey.” Read the rest of the article.

Cool Tool to Build Traffic and Google Rankings!

I am always on the hunt for marketing systems that will make my life easier and our business stronger. Over the years I’ve invested a nice chunk of change to test drive a host of different tools and today, I’d like to share one with you that absolutely LOVE!

About 6 months ago while at one of my Master Mind Meetings, one of my friends told me about a service called “SubmitYourArticle.com” He told me that he had been using it to help build traffic to his site as well as increase his online presence in Google. Like most other things I hear, I was pretty skeptical – most things, I’ve learned, are usually NOT what they claim to be. So…I did nothing…except file the information away in the back of my mind.

Now, fast-forward 5 months…Dr. Robyn and I are having a conversation about our plans for growth and one of the points on the agenda is to start using Article Marketing as a tool for Powerful Words as well as some of our other interests. For those of you who don’t yet know about article marketing – it’s pretty straight forward – there are a zillion different “article banks” on the internet that provide Free articles to anybody that want them (folks with websites, newsletters, ezines, etc.).

Now, you might be wondering why giving away articles would help grow a business or an internet presence…well – the beauty of all of the articles you provide is the little resource box at the end. You know…the one that says;

“Dr. Robyn Silverman is a child development specialist, success coach, and parenting expert. Known as “The Character Queen,” she’s the creator of the Powerful Words Character Toolkit, a character-building program for children’s activity centers and families. For more information, or to contact Dr. Robyn, please visit http://www.DrRobynSilverman.com or to take part in her Powerful Parenting Blog, visit http://www.DrRobynsBlog.com

This little box provides links back to your site which generates traffic…and hopefully interested prospects!!!

I started to research all of the different article banks on the internet and my mind started to swim – there are a gazillion of ’em. The time I’d spend submitting to all of them would prohibit me from doing anything else…so…I took a good look at submityourarticle.com and fell in love with it. I won’t bore ya with all of the details about how it works…if ya wanna learn about that – simply click on the link and check it out (I strongly urge anybody that wants more webtraffic, more google rankings, more clients, and more profit to do so IMMEDIATELY!), however, I will share some interesting statistics with you:

sumbityourarticle

We started using the service on March 1st 2008. So far, we’ve submitted 5 articles (you’re permitted to submit 8 per month). These are our results:

The 5 articles have been re-published 90 times. The 5 articles have been viewed (only on the one site we submitted them) 200 times. 64 people have subscribed to Dr. Robyn’s Free Article Feed!

If you want to see the results for yourself – simply go to google and enter “dr robyn silverman” and see how many pages pop up!

How would something like this help you? Well…imagine a parent searching for an activity for their child – they google something like “your town gymnastics” or “your town martial arts” or “your town dance”, etc. Now imagine that when they googled, they saw 10-15 pages of listings of different articles you’ve written…makes you an expert, doesn’t it? Odds are, they’ll click over to your school’s website…hopefully it’s a prospecting site that captures their information, and immediately and automatically starts the marketing process! (wow..this is a whole different post for another day)

In any case, we are firm believers that this service is helpful – make your own decision – I’m sure you’ll find it insightful!

best regards,

Jason M. Silverman
